Tequila is a strong alcoholic drink produced mainly around the city of Tequila in the Mexican state of Jalisco. It is distilled from 10-year-old Agave tequilana plants (Weber's blue agave). The most common types of tequila contain 38-40% alcohol. We know two basic types of tequila. Tequila 100% agave and tequila mixto. An alcoholic drink marked with the inscription 100% agave is a pure distillate from blue agave and can only be found exceptionally in Slovakia. This mark is, so to speak, a certificate of quality. The drink does not contain any additives and can be in Blanco, Reposado, Anejo or Extra Anejo versions. Tequila mixto is not a distillate, but a spirit. Although it is made from agave, cheaper sugar cane is also added to it. Therefore, the agave taste is weaker and the drink is not as smooth as 100% agave tequila. Tequila can only be produced in five regions of Mexico. Throughout the state of Jalisco and in certain areas of the states of Guanajuanto, Michoacán, Nayarit and Tamaulipas. The cultivation of agave and the production of tequila in Mexico is strictly regulated by law and thoroughly controlled. 100% agave tequilas are not drunk with salt, lemon or orange, as is customary in our country, but neat or in combination with sangrita, a special fruit and vegetable juice. In Slovakia, however, tequila mixtos have caught on in particular. Olmeca is among the most popular. Quality tequila reposado has a delicate golden color with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon in the taste. Tequila reposado is usually lighter than tequila gold, but it is of higher quality. The most mature tequilas include Anejo and Extra Anejo. They are typical dark, aromatically rich and complex tasting tequilas.
